Haute Italian Designer "Corduroy" Velour Knit - Mood Indigo
Please note: fabrics are sold in HALF YARDS, with a minimum order of 2 half yards (i.e. one yard minimum).
This STUNNER of an Italian knit has a ribbed, corduroy-effect face, reversing to a double-knit back, so both sides can show. It is SO luxurious, with a heavy drape and weight that makes it wonderful for jackets and coats for fall and beyond. This is used in garments that sell in Barneys for upwards of $1500. It will make a fabulous jacket using Vogue 1644. For a duster style jacket that you'll live in during cooler weather, pair it to Simplicity 8177.
To see the color, I advise ordering a swatch. The light meter on my camera had a hard time because of the reflective properties of the velvet face. The actual color is somewhat more muted than the pictures show. Believe me - you're going to love it!
